Description
Two knights have their dinner plans derailed as they discover object after object in their stove--objects that ominously belong to their missing friend, Harold--in this delightfully slapstick picture book.
Someone has put a sword in the stove.
Was it Eenie?
Was it Meenie?
Was it Harold?
WHO WOULD PUT A SWORD IN THE STOVE ?
Frank Dormer's rollicking whodunit has bumbling characters worthy of The Three Stooges, sly humor straight out of Monty Python, and an irresistible screwball spirit all its own.
